Mr. Media® Radio
No greater authority than Marvel Comics? own Stan Lee asks that you not read Barbara Slate?s new book, You Can Do a Graphic Novel.
I hate to counter the expresses wishes of the man who put the ?excel? in ?Excelsior!? but if you?ve ever thought about dabbling in the world of graphic novels and need a little help getting started, Barbara Slate may be the right hot poker for you.
Slate is a veteran of comic books and illustration, having started her career with a line of ?Ms. Liz? greeting cards and Cosmopolitan cartoons before graduating to comic books. She has worked for DC and Marvel, having illustrated everything from Barbie for Marvel, Beauty & the Beast for Disney and Betty & Veronica for Archie Comics. She?s also the author of the Yuppies from Hell series of graphic novels.
Speaking of ?from hell,? she?s a fellow parent of a teen-age daughter. Poor woman!

BARBARA SLATE audio excerpt: "A good story needs a beginning, middle and a twist. The twist is the surprise and what makes it interesting. You don't want a linear story."
